Is It August Already?

Can someone please tell me where the summer went?

Last night I turned my calendar over to August and practically cried because my baby only has 3 more weeks of summer vacation before she starts FIRST GRADE!

Where has the summer gone?  I didn't do nearly all the fun things I had planned.  It's just been an "OK" summer here.  Chalk it up to a combination of My Marine being gone all summer long and this stupid heat that has just been sucking the life out of me.  I haven't really blogged all summer.  My Facebook time has been limited.  And to be honest -- I haven't missed it.  I had no desire to write.  It was just another thing on my to-do list.

Anyway, back to the fact that time is just slipping away in a blink of an eye.  I hate my calendar.  It's a reminder to me that my baby girl is growing up.  But I still have 3 weeks left.  3 weeks where I can still make sure my girls have a fun summer.  3 weeks where hopefully My Marine will be home for a few days so that he can enjoy some of these summer days with our girls.

Now I'm off to reheat my coffee and see what the day will bring!

Summer is going by way too fast! My kids don't start school until after Labor Day, so we have a bit more time.

Hi Jennifer,
First of all, thanks for buying a copy of Show Me How! Maybe you will have some great activities to end the last few weeks of summer with. :)
I think everyone feels the same way...the summer has flown by, it has been so unseasonably hot here in Colorado, and I also have not been as faithful as I had been with my blog posts...I am hoping to get back to writing more frequently...I went from writing EVERY day to writing just once a week...I miss the writing and the connecting with others...but I just have not had the time with all of the book/children's reading and crafting events going on. I hope we can connect in person at some point in time. :)

Hi,
Found your blog while searching...yours is the first I found that I can relate to being a seasoned army wife. My hubby comes home next week and we'll have about a week before our first of three starts kindergarten. I hope you enjoy your last few weeks with your precious family as well!
